           At HST we have several housings that allow us to run-up and test certain Okuma spindles as well as some other brands that come in without a

           complete housing assembly like this Okuma HF-503 spindle.

          Our customers will never see the inside of their Okuma cooling jacket. That's too bad, because when they leave HST they shine.

 

          Why is that important? Heat is a major contributor to spindle failure. Any corrosion, scale, or restrictions can adversely affect the

          thermal transfer coefficient of the cooling jacket. That can result in an excessive temperature rise and a premature spindle failure.

 


          

          All ports and passages are cleaned and checked  All o-rings are replaced and the whole unit is pressure tested after           assembly.
